Burna Boy is in CTRL! The international superstar curates the essential summer playlist with a collection of songs exclusively for CTRL.
Taking the world by storm, the self-proclaimed “African Giant” has lived up to his name and has celebrated his roots through a lively spirit that lights up with every release. With the release of his 2019 album AFRICAN GIANT, Burna Boy achieved crossover success with a record that progressively expanded his potential with dominating more sounds than one. While it helped to propel him into a wider realm into the mainstream world, it remained authentic without sacrificing any sense of individuality for the sake of a more accessible appeal.
Now Burna Boy is back and is ready to launch his fifth studio album Twice As Tall. His latest single “Wonderful” is the first taste of what’s to come. The song pays homage to Africa and celebrates the culture as it looks into how Africa, above all, is home. Instantly connecting with listeners, the song is a lively manifesto that looks into the significance of the wonders of the world.
To continue the celebration, Burna Boy has curated a summer playlist for CTRL. Burna Boy’s “Summer Essential’s” include a variety of songs such as his single “Wonderful”, his recent collaboration with Jorja Smith “Be Honest”, as well as notable hits “Lockdown” by Koffee and “The Scotts” by Kid Cudi and Travis Scott.
“These songs are lighthearted and a good vibe for turning up or just a light vibe …. Enjoy!” – Burna Boy
